KEYNOTE TALK

Dr Jonathan Downie, Integrity Languages

Finding the Right Professional to Help You Reach an International Audience


SUMMARY

The explosion of the world wide web has made it possible for almost any business to be found by an international audience. Yet, it is now known that speaking only English puts you at a distinct disadvantage when doing business internationally as it limits your perspective and reduces your understanding of your potential clients. To not just reach a new audience but connect with them you need to work with the right professionals.

This short talk will look at the main professionals you will need to work with and how to find them, stories of good and bad practice, and of course, why relying on Google Translate is not going to win you any kudos … or sales. If your business could do with an international boost, this session is for you.
